Had a laptop with the repair video on next to washer and paused after each set of instructions to complete each task. Went perfectly! Only tricky part was fitting the cover back but eventually got it with a bit of jiggling. Very impressed with the instructional video as everything was where they showed it and came apart exactly as explained and more importantly went back together correctly.

Disassembled upper agitator to ascertain cause of problem. Agitator directional cogs were worn out. Washer on agitator bolt was also worn off. Replaced those parts along with installing a new thrust spacer and everything works beautifully. Only required a standard #2 flat screwdriver to pop the cover off the agitator and a 7/16 socket on an extension to remove the agitator bolt. Quite a simple project.

I was thrilled that the agitator parts were so easy to replace, but that didn't totally fix my problem. I looked underneath the washer and found black rubber shavings from a worn part and looked online and found that the problem was most likely the Direct Drive Motor Coupling. I watched the video and ordered the part. The coupling was actually broken. After replacing the part, the washer works great...better than it has in years. I think I will work on our dryer now.

Since I live in a condo (upstairs unit) flipping the machine was not an easy option. So I was faced with having to get the remaining 2-3 gallons of water out of the drum. I rigged something up and collected 80% of the water, but be prepared for a mess. I was and it wasn't a big deal, just took more time. Once part was removed, I got online to find the part- which ranged in price from $67 at a local appliance part distributor to $49 from SearsDirect including postage. Parts select came in at $37 with freight and the part swapped out perfectly- just 2 clips that hold the pump on and 2 hose clamps (I used slip-joint pliers which works well). I checked YouTube for a video first and lo and behold, there was a video about a whirlpool water pump replacement, which helped some. Job went well and I didn't have to replace a $1200 all-in-one.

Drum moves and strange noise when spinning

  • Customer: Kenneth from Hillsborough, NJ
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

When I pulled the machine out, I noticed one of the suspension springs on the floor. I followed the video supplied by PartSelect.com and suggestions by other folks. I started with the spring that was missing, which was a mistake since I did not know that there are custom spring clips which hold the spring to the drum. Once I found the missing part the installation was very easy. I used the suggestion by another post, of wedging a block of wood between the back of the machine and drum, to relax the rear suspension spring, which eliminated having to remove the back of the machine or tipping the machine on the back to get at the screw. I will always look to PartSelect.com for any future appliance repairs. You are the greatest

I installed the inlet valve, and it still overflowed. Then I connected the plastic hose from the water level sensor that had came off, to the water level selector and it worked fine

I performed the repair the same as outlined in the video, but I didn't need to tip the washer on the back side. Once I removed the sheetmetal, I was able to swap out the drive coupler, and the new part is a better design than the one that broke.

I followed the directions in the two videos that were provided on your web sight. It fixed the problem and it only cost us about $60.00. We were so thrilled with the results. We were almost ready to go buy a new washer. My wife suggested that we look it up on line and see if we couldn't fix it ourselves before spending the money on a new washer. Was she ever right! Thanks for providing such fine instructional videos.
